The Power of the CrossPrint This Post
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18)
The image you are seeing in this post is a graphic rendering of what scientists call a “laminin.” This artistic image is derived from microscopic photos, and it is not enhanced with any “Christian” bias.
Look up laminin in any scientific/medical literature and this is what you will see.
Wikipedia describes Laminins as “a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue.”
Laminins are what hold us together…. literally. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart.
Hmmm. That strikes me as more than just interesting….it is astounding.
Here we have one of those many wondrous examples of God’s handiwork, which fill our world. How amazing to know that the very base of my structural existence is held together by a cross!
As it is true in the natural, so it is true in the spiritual.
‘He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible And invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or Authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.’ Colossians 1:15-17
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
